Need Ideas For Some Icons

Recommended Posts

Keep in mind this is a fish tank type game so I want to try to stay with the theme of underwater/fish tanks/sea

 

1. Shop icon - I was thinking a shopping cart with sea weed grown on it and some sea crustations like its been under water a long time.

 

2. Menu icon - A sea shell? This is a generic icon that when clicked will bring up some buttons for leaderboards, mailbox, settings, and achievements.

 

Anyone think they have a better idea?

Sounds good. Sortta depends on what other icons and GUI elements you're building, the style your artwork, and the size of the icons. When it comes to icons I usually incline to keep things simpler, rather than detailed, as you usually don't have a lot of pixels to work with, and I always go for readability first.

It's probably possible to double-use a tank decoration graphic as an icon (most fishtank games have tank decorations, so I'm assuming your does).  Out of curiosity, do you have a fish breeding system?  I'm always looking for new pet breeding games to play.

The 4 bubble icons on the right (and left) only appear if you tap the shell, tapping the shell again makes them float away. Also keep in mind the background is just a placeholder as there will be decorations, rocks, plants, etc... But I still feel like there could be something better than the shells used for those 2 icons.

Haven't incorporated breeding yet, still brainstorming how I want to go about doing it.

A stylized fish store for the shop?  Like a little "Fishes-R-Us" building/storefront? 

 

How about an aquarium filter for the menu.  They have those, right?  Or maybe a cartoony pic of an actual aquarium from an angled view.
